Now I Lay Me Down

As easy as a light switch is turned from on to off,

I find this aging body, automatically and unknowingly,

entering a  deep, deep slumber

for it craves rest

after a long day of moving from here to there

and up and down.

So simple a thing  rest is , yet so vital to function.

When young  we fought against what we needed most,

but as an adult we welcome it with open arms

no matter what the time of the day….. Ahhhh,    the    nap!
